This PoC aims to show orchestration of a network service including configuration of network devices according to the service intent, followed by activation tests, and finally ongoing service level assurance monitoring to verify that the service delivered is what was committed. The use case is based around streaming HTTP video delivered over an orchestrated L3VPN and a radio access network with distributed content caching.
The PoC is based on using a tight service model coupling based on YANG and aims to show that service KPIs can be bound to the orchestrated service and monitored by active virtual probes, so-called vProbes. In the PoC, these vProbes are launched on NFV infrastructure, both in the data center environment, as well as on the demarcation locations at so called distributed NFV locations.
